Windows 7: How to Make One Exception to a Windows Firewall Outbound Rule?

How to Make One Exception to a Windows Firewall Outbound Rule?

The current situation:

I disabled network connectivity to a particular IP on my Windows computer. In other words, if my system tries to connect to the internet through that specific IP address, it will not be able to do so.

I disabled the connectivity as mentioned above, by following the steps described in the following post: How can I disable network connectivity to a particular port or IP address in Windows?

My Goal:

I would like to allow one single program on my Windows to use that IP and connect to the internet through it (right now that program, like all programs, cannot access internet through that IP, due to the above-mentioned outbound rule).

In other words, my goal is to create an exception to the above mentioned outbound rule, that will allow that specific program to access the Internet through that IP. The outbound rule should apply to all programs and services, except one.

How can I configure things to work this way? Could you please help me?
